COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water; wheat malt; barley malt; roasted malt; hops; yeast.
Name changed from Erdinger Weissbier Dunkel to Erdinger Dunkel, and abv changed from 5.6% to 5.3% by 2012.
A wheat beer from the good old days.
Erdinger Weissbier ’dark’ is a rich and smooth wheat beer specialty from Erdinger Weissbräu. It owes its full-bodied flavor to the fine hops and dark malt used in its production.
The dark beer specialty is brewed according to an age-old recipe. Its spicy flavor also results from the increased proportion (about 13%) of original wort. Nonetheless, at 5.3%, it doesn’t contain much more alcohol than Erdinger Weissbier ’with fine yeast’.

Moravius (1063) - Beijing, CHINA - MAR 13, 2016
Flasche (50 cl) von Jenny Lou’s, Peking. - Tiefes Dunkelbraun, trüb; reichlich Schaum. - Typisch obergärige Nase mit warmem dunklem Malz und schwach weiniger Süße. - Antrunk weich und mild dunkelmalzig mit sehr milden, überreif-süßen Fruchtnoten. Nur ein Hauch von krautiger Herbe, zarte Anklänge an Nelke, sehr zarte Säure. Fast brausig rezent, dünnes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang fehlt eindeutig der Hopfen, dadurch bleibt ein etwas leerer Eindruck. - Recht dünnes Dunkelweizen mit allzu schwach ausgeprägten Aromen. Enttäuschend.

Bottle from Carter’s tap. Pours hazy dark brown with a big ol’ fawn head. Aromas of banana bread, cloves, malt load. Taste follows nose. A bit thin on the finish.

12 oz bottle. Just plain average --- nothing to rave about. Should have been better for a beer from Germany.
